This is Part 30 of our weekly North Carolina Criminal Defense video blog: “Drug Detox Programs as Part of an NC Sentence“
Drug treatment court is a great program that we have here in Wake County. Basically, it involves the offender being on supervised probation, but it involves weekly meetings and counseling sessions. Part of the process is that if there are positive urine screens for drugs, that offender can spend the weekend in jail. They have their own sanctions. It’s a great program here in Wake County if you’re on probation.
